“Great Pizza”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This place has a good selection of Pizza that is delicious (thats all i tried so i dont know about the rest of the menu).

Service could be improved but they are so packed most nights that its understandable.

A piece of advice as they are usually booked out (tell them you dont mind sitting on the bar) usually you will be seated immediately.

Breakfast on the terrace on a sunny day is def. worth it.

I ate a couple of times at M Street Kitchen next door where they also have delicious food. Since the waiter mentioned that Stella Rosa also belong to the same family we wanted to try . Had the Margarita and its lovely ! Great service and good atmosphere.

“Great Pizza in a Cool Location!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I have eaten now at Pizzeria Moza and Stella Rosa and I think that I would give a slight edge to Stella Rossa for the simple reason that the crust is almost as good as the crust of the pizza at Lombardi's in NYC.....We split the sausage pizza and the Truffle pizza....The crust on the truffle pizza was perfectly crispy and slightly black on the bottom, which gave it a great smoky flavor....the truffles were good but a bit strong, as I would have preferred more of the garlic and arugula pesto to come through with the truffles....the sausage pizza was excellent in that the sausage was house made and flavorful while the red sauce was great as well and slightly spicy....the bar scene was picturesque in many ways and it was a nice place to grab a glass of wine and watch football.....Hard to beat!

“A very good pizza in a crowded place!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I entered the Stella Rossa basically because I saw many many people (no tourists), which is generally a good sign! As an Italian, I always try to avoid pizzerias, but this one sounded really nice... and I was right! My suggestion is to try the fennel pizza, which is a white pizza (no tomatoes), topped with fennel, rosemary, and basil: I was really surprised. Plus, the price is reasonable, and the service is kind and quick.

“Stella Rosa Bella”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The pizza was fantastic! Went with a group and shared different pizzas and appetizers. Everything was great! Service was terrific. Only downside were the stools. Not great if you have back issues. Definitely worth it, though!
